The 2018-19 Kindness Project Finale

We are excited to announce the winner of the Kindness Challenge drawing. Manny Galvan-Rios has won a chromebook! We are proud of all students that have participated in spreading kindness throughout our school. Thank you Mrs. Moore and her class for leading the Kindness Challenge.  Here is some information about our Kindness Challenge's success this school year:

The Kindness Challenge began in one class of 8 students, with  one teacher, and one instructional assistant. Meadow School supported ALL requests and the Innovation award allowed us to give students $80 in prize money, 4 t-shirts, and a Chromebook! Furthermore, out of 680 students enrolled in Meadow, there were 169 participants, or almost  25% of our student body, represented in the Grand Prize drawing. Imagine the possibilities if the Challenge continues next year and spreads across the district to other schools and students!
